IELTS Speaking Model: Clothes - Part 1

Updated on June 19, 2013


IELTS Speaking Model: Clothes- Part 1

IELTS(International English Language Testing System) is the world's leading test of English for higher education, immigration and employment. Below are some sample questions and model answers for the topic ‘Clothes

Do you think it's important what clothes you wear? (Why?/Why not?)
Well I guess it kinda depends on the situation. When I stay at home I don't really think it's necessary to be all dressed up. However if I go to a party, obviously I don't want to be a seen as a slob so I would dress appropriate for the occasion.

Do you think the clothes a person wears leaves an impression on others?
Definitely, when I see someone dressed in a suit I would feel they are professional and definitely a white collar worker. Whereas in contrast when I see someone dressed in an old t-shirt with holes I wouldn't even want to talk with them.

What kinds/styles of clothes do you like (or, prefer) to wear? (Why?)
Actually I prefer comfort over style so I'm more fond of casual clothes. To be more specific in summer I wear t-shirts and shirts and in the winter I general wear jeans and a jacket. Actually, I'm also fond of wearing a cowboy hat but that's kinda unusual in China.

Do you wear the same kinds of clothes in winter and summer?
Definitely not. In summer I normally wear t-shirts and shorts if I wore those in winter I would probably die from the cold. I'm afraid of cold weather so during winter I would weather many layers of sweaters and a winter coat.

Do your friends have the same tastes in clothes as you?
Yes they do. My friends and I are into the same types of clothes which makes it really convenient coz we can go shopping together.In fact I have made quite a few friends at the department store.

Do you think you will still be wearing the same kinds of clothes when you are old?
Well, yeah! Even when I have white hair and my teeth have all fallen out I seriously think I would still be wearing the clothes that I'm wearing today - t-shirt and shorts.
